According to The Oregonian, the family of Tracey Sparling -- the 19-year who was killed when a cement truck turned right into her in October 2007 -- has filed a lawsuit against the trucking company.
Here's more from The Oregonian:
"The suit was filed Tuesday in Multnomah County Circuit Court against the driver and his company. The suit accuses the driver of negligence for not yielding the right of way under Oregon law and failing to use his mirrors and control the vehicle owned by Rinker Materials."
The truck driver was
not cited by police issued a citation by the Portland Police Bureau for Failure to Yield to a bicycle in a bike lane but he was not charged by the district attorney's office.
